While it is possible that signing Turris could be the first step towards a trade – he reportedly wants out of Phoenix – during the holdout Phoenix general manager Don Maloney repeatedly said the Coyotes would not be trading Turris.
"We are pleased to agree to terms with Kyle on a multi-year contract," Maloney said in a press release. "Kyle is a top, young player who will make us a better team. We look forward to having him in our lineup so he can contribute to our team."
In September, Maloney also chastised Turris' contract demands, saying they were "illogical" for a guy that has 46 points in 131 career NHL games. Turris reportedly wanted a contract that would pay him in the neighborhood of $3 million to $4 million per season.
Turris was the No. 3 pick in the 2007 Entry Draft behind Patrick Kane and James van Riemsdyk.
